A wide quiet street just a stone throw’s from Islington High Street, River Street is a historic street lined with mature green trees and grand Georgian homes nestled amongst relaxing Victorian squares. While a lot of these properties are now converted into well-maintain flats and maisonettes, some grand family homes still remain.
Tucked amongst the sought-after areas of Clerkenwell, King’s Cross and Angel, River Street is perfectly positioned for those wanting to be within the heart of the city, while still maintaining a laid-back, artistic vibe. Commuters revel in the area’s proximity to King’s Cross St Pancras station, as well as all of the bus routes that Pentonville Road and Upper Street have to offer (not to mention the Boris Bike station at the end of the road). Parking can be obtained through application to the local Islington council, as off-street parking is a rarity in this area.
Residents here are never at a loss for something to do on an evening or weekend. Exmouth market, Upper Street and Camden Passage are all within easy walking distance for those relaxed afternoons spent meandering around antique shops, independent fashion stores and boutiques. Only moments away from River Street there are an endless array of restaurants from around the globe, alongside cosy local pubs, minimalist quirky bars and delightfully delish restaurants (not to mention the highly regarded Sadler’s Wells theatre).
Slightly secluded from the noise and traffic of central London, River Street offers a sanctuary to its residents. With easy access to the City, Canary Wharf and beyond, this charming road should be on all professional tenant radars.
